5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and helpful handbook, 17 Aug. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Writing Biography & Autobiography (Writing Handbooks) (Paperback)
'How to' books are not always readable, you have to read them because you have to or you ought to. Brian Osborne's chatty easy style made this a highly readable book, the information is put over in such a way that you absorb it without it being hard work. I was able to skip quite a lot, as an experienced writer I fortunately didn't need the basic information on setting out the work or selling it, as I have an agent, but it is there for those who are starting out. It has helped me clarify my thoughts for the biography I am working on right now. An excellent book full of useful information and sensible advice on the pitfalls and problems of tackling such a project together with encouragement in the form of the good points of tackling such a project. I would recommend this to anyone considering starting work on a biography or an autobiography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucid and thorough, 21 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Writing Biography & Autobiography (Writing Handbooks) (Paperback)
The author has written three biographies. He seems a lot more interested in biographies than autobiographies. On the former he's very good indeed - the treatment is firm, thoughtful and thorough.

A very good book for the potential biographer or auto biographer. The book covers important aspects of the field of biography and should be very helpful for all those embarking on a biography of any sort.
